As a select participant in the colloquium, you will be joining leading academics, influencers, and fellow technical and business leaders from IBM's client organizations as we discuss future scenarios in which consumers and enterprises will experience cognitive systems. Under this premise, we will examine how consumers might manage and monitor their day-to-day banking, shopping and health, and also look through the enterprise lens and explore the underpinnings of a new era of learning systems that will change the way we work and do business in the age of massive-scale data.
IBM Research has convened a stellar list of speakers including the founder of Palm, Jeff Hawkins; Paul Hofmann, CTO of Saffron Technology; John Hollar, President of the Computer History Museum; Dick Karp, Turing Award and Kyoto Prize recipient; Olivier Lictharge, Baylor School of Medicine; and distinguished panelists from the Silicon Valley VC community.
As more of the world's activity is expressed digitally, data growth continues to accelerate in volume, speed and uncertainty. Cognitive systems like IBM Watson - which can learn and interact naturally with humans - are emerging to enhance human cognition and enable human experts to make better decisions in the world of Big Data.
We hope that you can join us for this event. Please send an email to Christina Howell (firstname.lastname@example.org) to RSVP or to ask any questions about the event.
